Its Finally Here

Hello everyone , hope all is well with you and your loved ones.

As the blog title alludes to, it is finally time for us to head off on our postponed European trip. We leave home tomorrow morning and fly to Melbourne , where we spend a night before boarding our flight to Paris on Wednesday afternoon. This works well as it gives us the opportunity to meet our son Callum and his partner Georgie for dinner.

Raffy and I enjoying some Spring sunshine in the garden last Thursday . I had just returned from having brunch with my friends Didee , Peta and Marcus. Didee and I have known each other since high school ( just a wee while ago).

I will miss Raffy while we are away but know he is in good hands and will be spoilt rotten , thanks to friends Amanda and Woody.

My outfit for our brunch was my Etal gingham dress , worn over a white shirt , its still a little chilly , black tights and white Preston Zly shoes.

To be honest I wore the dress as I was considering taking it on my trip but have now changed my mind as its cotton and fuller and does crease somewhat and it couldn’t justify a packing space.

I will admit to having a bit of a meltdown over my packing , I am so out of practice and will need both lighter and warm clothing. I received  sage advice from my friend, Suzanne , on the packing issue . She suggested that every bottom piece have three friends and the shoes should work with everything . I am mainly taking black basics with some colour in tops and accessories.  I am trying to leave some space in my luggage , I may just find a few treats that call my name.

I have been asked by friends and family if I will blog while I’m away , not really sure at this stage but I will post on Instagram along the way.

Today is also our 47th. wedding anniversary , my how time flies. Thank you John for putting up with me and my foibles for all these years and for your love and support .
